Psoriasis Sunlamp

The Sperti Psoriasis Sunlamp uses special UVB bulbs to help treat psoriasis on the skin. Because this is an FDA approved light, it is required that we obtain a copy of a prescription from a doctor before we can ship any unit. If you are looking to purchase the Psoriasis Sunlamp, please make sure you have or will be able to get a prescription for this light. Once you have your prescription, you can either fax it to: 775-622-8060 or scan and email it to: orders@sperti.com   Once we receive it, we can get your lamp shipped right away.

Because psoriasis effects every person differently (severity, location, etc.) your doctor will need to give you specific instructions for how they want you to use the lamp. When you purchase the Psoriasis Sunlamp, it will come with an instruction sheet that gives general instructions on usage, safety, output, etc. but your doctor will let you know exactly how long to use the light, how often, how close to be to it, and where to direct the light.

Technical Difficulties With Timer?

Is the timer on your sun lamp stopping before the time runs out? If yes, then the timer knob has gotten pushed in and simply needs to be popped back into place.

Sometimes during shipping or regular use, the timer knob can get pushed in and cause it to snag on the screw behind it. If this happens, it is an easy fix that takes about 1-2 minutes.

In order to get the timer back into place, you will need something to put behind the knob to push it forward – a butter knife or flathead screwdriver work well.

Start by putting the flat object behind the timer knob. Gently make your way around the knob, slowly wedging it forward as you go. Once the timer gets pushed forward, you should be able to see a gap between the back of the knob and the sun lamp.

If the knob gets completely detached from the unit, simply put it back into place.

Now that the timer is back in place, your sun lamp is ready to go!

Get The Most Out Of Your Sun Lamp

When using your sun lamp, there are a couple important instructions to follow in order to make sure you are getting the most benefit from your light.

  1. Make sure to have the light shining directly on your skin. In order for your body to be able to have a reaction from the UV (whether it is producing vitamin D or tanning your skin), your bare skin needs to be exposed to the light.
  2. Always wear your protective eye wear when using the light. The 2 pairs of eye wear that came with your sun lamp, provide 100% UV protection.
  3. Don’t use the lamp for longer than advised. The FijiSun Tanning Lamp has a 15 minute maximum and the Vitamin D Lamp has a 5 minute maximum. Keep in mind that the units do not give off any heat – just because you don’t feel the light, doesn’t mean it’s not working.

By following these simple directions, it will insure that you get the most benefit from your sun lamp!

Del Sol UV-93 Sun Lamp

If you have an older model Sperti sunlamp from about 8 or more years ago, this post is for you. Our model: Del Sol was discontinued about 8 years ago. This unit was used for vitamin D or tanning and only used 1 bulb. We carried the replacement bulbs for about 5 years after the unit was discontinued and then the machine that was used to produce the bulbs stopped being serviced so we can no longer offer them.

Our new sun lamps are now FDA approved and have some updated technology, so it can deliver greater results than the older model.

We apologize any inconvenience this has caused but we would like to make it up to you. Anyone that has a Del Sol lamp that no longer works and needs an upgrade, we can offer you a 20% discount on a new sunlamp! All you have to do is give our office a call and we will be able to apply this discount to your order of a new light. Please feel free to contact us with any questions: 800-544-3757

Sun Lamps and Skin Tone

Depending on your skin tone, sun lamps can have a different effect. For someone with a lighter skin tone, your skin may turn pink after using a sun lamp. This is completely normal as it is just your skin’s reaction to the UV. While someone with a darker skin tone, may not be able to absorb the UV as well. People with darker skin do not absorb UV as quickly so it can take a little longer to raise your vitamin D levels.

When it comes to the Fiji Sun Tanning Lamp, your skin type will determine how long you should use the unit. Someone with fair skin should start off using the light for no more than 3 minutes while someone with darker skin could start using it for about 4 minutes. This may not seem like a big difference but when it comes to UV exposure, every minute counts. Just keep in mind that turning pink is a normal result. It means that your body is reacting to the UVA and the pinkness will gradually turn into the desired tan.

Always remember to read through the instruction manual before you start using a sun lamp and make sure to always wear your protective eyewear.
